LBGTQ* History Through Photos
The Radical Faeries
The above photos are from various gatherings of The Radical Faeries. The group was founded by Harry Hay, one of the leading LGB rights organizers of the mid-20th century and founding member of the Mattachine Society. The Radical Faeries was founded as a way for queer men to use spirituality and nature to replenish and nourish the body and mind. The group worked as an activist group, using naturalistic healing and ritual practices to unite members and create open forums for discussion.

Skogsrån (watchers of the forest) are mysterious women who guard the forest and all its creatures. Seen from the front they are unearthly beautiful, but their backs are hollow like old and rotten trees, and they often have the tail of an animal. To protect the forest, they seduce and sleep with woodcutters and then steal their souls, leaving them empty husks of their former selves.
